It’s in the 60s in Minneapolis. How much warmer will it be at the southern tip of Texas?
At 1253PM, CT, Brownsville was reporting a temperature of 57 degrees with cloudy skies. An upper level trough over Texas is generating some surface rotation over the western Gulf. Moisture is wrapping into Texas, and surface convergence is leading to widespread showers and thunderstorms across the state, though over deep south Texas, Brownsville and the surrounding area were seeing a westerly flow, eliminating the chance for showers there, but not the stratus.
The upper trough is undercutting a ridge over the center of the country, and will eventually be pulled north with the prevailing flow. Streaming moisture will continue streaming into the low, with a band of showers and storms extending through much of east Texas, and initial indications are that the rain and clouds will be squeezed out of Texas by tomorrow afternoon, meaning Monday should be more pleasant.
